Lease agreements are legal documents. So unless there is a provision to end the agreement early, or a breach in the contract, the only way to do it would be to reach some kind of agreement with the landlord.
Most lease agreements say that the Lessor must provide "quite enjoyment", and "habitable" living conditions. I have seen people get out of leases when there is an issue with loud neighbors, an annoying landlord, or sub-par living conditions (like AC quits working, or ants are infesting the apartment, etc).
You don't want to loose your security deposit, or be found liable for the complete amount of the rents. So make sure when you do reach an agreement to get out that you get it in writing that it is agreed to, and that as long as the condition of the property is acceptable (or better yet that is was already inspected and found to be acceptable) that you will get your deposit back and be released from the agreement.
Don't just leave. That could have legal consequences. Read the lease, see if there is anything that has been breached, then talk to the landlord.
"The Best Area" will really depend on what you want, and what is beat for you. Are you looking to be close to a ski resort? Good schools? Out of the smog? Fast commute to somewhere? What would make it the "Best Area" for you? Once you know that, I would recommend looking at the KSL.com classifieds to see available rentals. The MLS does not allow rentals in this part of Utah. So there is no repository of all available rentals. Most private owners, and rental companies list their homes for rent on the online classifieds at KSL.com. And you can use them for free.
I am the principal broker of a local brokerage that provides a military discount to veterans. I am also a veteran. I would love to get you a list of available propertys today and help get you into the home that you want. Call or email me for an immediate response. Thanks... more
Nevada is super cheap. And it seems good now cause its newer homes that look nice but with their unemployment being so high and there foreclosures still sky rocketing some experts are saying Nevada is 30 years away from returning to their prices. Arizona is 17 years. Which means that home prices will still decline and rents will decline. You want a rental where the job market is healthy. Lots of jobs means rents will always be solid. There are a few places that have solid rental markets where prices are still low. Utah has some great in slc co where you can pic up homes for 70k and rent them for $900 + a month. Other areas Ive seen do really well as well are ohio, and Indianapolis. Both those places have low prices for homes (like 40k) fully rented with year leases in place and property management companies set up, and you can get a good renter that pays $650 a month.
If your interested in any of those areas then call me cause I have connections to all those areas I mentioned.
P.s. we can get you homes in Nevada as well I just wouldnt recommend it :) And as far as llc its not a problem.
